Fela Kuti conga player Pax Nicholas gets reissued

paxnicholas_press500loFela Kuti conga player and background singer Nicholas Addo-Nettey, or Pax Nicholas (he appeared on all of Fela’s Africa 70 albums between 1971 and 1978), released Na Teef Know The Road of Teef in 1973. The album was made with Africa 70 musicians and singers and recorded in Ginger Baker’s Lagos studio, where many of Fela’s albums were also recorded. In 2005, Frank Gossner (aka DJ Soulpusher of voodoofunk.com), found a copy at a record store in Philly, tracked down Nicholas in Berlin, where he was now living, and brought Na Teef Know The Road of Teef to the attention of Daptone Records. Daptone is proud to be re-releasing the full-length, with its original cover art and tracklisting, on September 1, 2009, marking the first release since the initial limited pressing some three decades ago.
